De farine et d'eau fraiche- awesome new bakery

Checked out "De farine et d'eau fraiche" after having driven by and being enticed by it's appealing window. It is my new dream café/bakery! The aesthetic inside is gorgeous, the baking is displayed like treasures, tea is served in vintage china, little miniature wedding cakes for one are on display (60$ a piece, but each as precious and meticulously crafted as a Fabergé egg), I can go on. The baking is delicious- we had the carrot cake, a flaky buttery orange pastry, a petit four, and a chipolte chocolate caramel, and everything was delicious. The servings are small, but the prices are reasonable- and it gives you an excuse to try more than one thing. The owner and her staff are equally charming. They serve lunch as well and seemed to have nice options. On Amherst below Ontario. A perfect venue for high tea!
